International Road Federation (IRF)



Founded in 1948, the International Road Federation (IRF) is the only world forum advocating better and safer roads through optimum road design and construction. IRF is a non-governmental, not-for-profit organisation with the mission to promote roads that are safe, economically viable and ecologically friendly.  As a unique global platform bringing together public and private entities, IRF is committed to sound road infrastructure that brings prosperity, fights poverty, furthers education and gives better access to health services.  

IRF is part of the UNECE Climate change adaptation expert group and its members have considerable experience in the development and implementation of climate change adaptation strategies and tools.
